Libertarians, Drugs, and Voting

Libertarians, in their twin obsessions with freedom understood as carte blanche to do anything one wants, and a desperate search for more votes, have increasingly defined themselves as the party of recreational drug use. There is nary an issue that a libertarian cannot eventually bring around to a discussion of basic individual liberties, and nary a discussion of basic individual liberties that will...

The Progressive Presupposition

There is all the difference in the world between describing certain beliefs or assumptions as “intolerable” or “unacceptable” as a point of rhetorical emphasis, and describing them this way as a matter of practical governmental policy, i.e., between strongly disapproving of someone’s thoughts and actively engaging the coercive power of the state to criminalize and punish those thoughts. Unless, that is, one happens...

Of Trudeaus and Truckers

A lot of Canadian truckers from across the country, though it seems primarily from Western Canada — historically hated and belittled by those at the heart of downtown Trudeaupia — have “descended upon,” or rather rolled horizontally into, the nation’s capital, and subsequently fanned out to various other conspicuous locations, to announce their objection to certain Trudeau policies related to the Covid-19 pandemic,...

Some Questions About Socialism (and One Answer)

Garry Kasparov describes socialism, correctly, as communism with “better marketing.” He abhors dictatorship and all evidence of authoritarianism, and believes it is incumbent on free nations to take hard stands against global aggressors like Xi Jinping, Vladimir Putin, and the Mullahs in Iran. Why, then, is he a consistent and vocal supporter of the Democratic Party? Please do not say, “Because at least...

More Marvels of Moral Equivalency; plus One Honest Man

Wonders never cease, if by wonders we mean spectacles of moral and intellectual vapidity presented by Canadian men named Trudeau. The Iranian Islamic despotism shot down a passenger jet full of innocent people, dozens of them Canadians of Iranian descent. The Islamic despots are denying that they shot down the jet, although the rest of the world (excepting the usual global apologists for...

Elitism vs. Snobbery

This past week, the NATO summit — am I alone in having to stifle a chortle every time we hear of today’s global “ruling class” labeling any of their champagne-and-empty-talking-points soirées a summit? — was turned upside down in a manner most typical of our social-media-infested age. Several VIPs (aka halfwits) were caught on video mocking Donald Trump in his absence. The comical...

Hitler, Trump, and Other Unrelated Things

Today, during the latest episode of The Impeachables, a Stanford University professor of some sort — honestly don’t know and honestly don’t care — replied to a straight line from one of the Democratic “questioners,” who pretended to ask (for what possible purpose? — I don’t know and I don’t care) how a U.S. president is different from a king, with this zinger: I’ll...

“This is a system that is wrong”

Greta Thunberg has carried her message of hope and change — by which of course I mean mass starvation and totalitarian oppression — to her spiritual North American homeland, the New World’s Sweden, Canada. While there, she served as the honorary mascot — Does this girl’s father even care whether she lives or dies beyond the day he finishes cashing in on her?...

Further Reflections on Trudeau’s “Blackface Scandal”

Canada’s Prime Progressive Fop, Justin of the Trudeaus, has attempted to weaken the blow of the endless storm of repetitive photographic revelations bound to rain down on him now that the dam is burst, by admitting that he cannot say “definitively” how often he has worn black- or brownface in public.  Think about that: This man has dressed up in blackface makeup (and...

Trump: God’s Gift to the World’s Puny Men

One of the strange but predictable results of Donald Trump’s presidency is that in his ignorance he has found remarkably inventive ways to elevate and aggrandize some of the world’s most absurd and/or dangerous leaders. Leaving aside Vladimir Putin, Trump’s favorite bully, but a thug who was doing just fine without Trump’s help, the list of lousy men whose stock has risen under...
